hi babybloom, I wouldn't worry about the grandfathers having any influence on your boy, not unless he sees them and spends time with the grandpas. I wonder since you mentioned your boys size, could he be feeling a bit bullied or teased. ?? im just wondering, if he is bigger than the average, people might expect him to be older, and therefore expect better from him, I mean better language skills. better abilities with his hands,?? that sort of thing. I have known children who are picked on just because of their size, and they seem to get a bit aggressive even before the teasing starts?? if his behaviour is peaceful and calm at home, then I would be looking at the situation at kinder and see what is different. also he could have a sensitivity to loud noises, or constant activity, and the whole confusion of the kinder is just too much. but I don't know if that will apply since you said it had only been a recent change in his behaviour, and he has been attending kinder for a long time. marie.
On the pamphlet about tonsillectomies, it says symptoms include difficult behaviour (sorry don't have the exact wording as I don't have it in front of me) but something else to throw in the mix.
Perhaps chat to a ear/nose/throat specialist?
well today it's gone from bad to worse. DH walked past and took a slice of apple of DS plate and it resulted in tears, my son demanding a whole new apply and then chocking on the carrot he was eating. Today I feel like I'm dealing with a teenage girl!
maybe it is a hormonal thing.
Op, you mentioned the obstructive speed apnoea.
Is he tired when he lashes out?
We got our ds1's tonsils out last year for obstruction. Best thing we ever, ever did for him. He was so tired that he lacked concentration. He was never angry, but just always full on. He was different to your little boy in that he was a really poor eater and very skinny and thankfully since he had them out he's improved out of sight and his weight has improved too.
Don't dismiss the impact that tonsils and adenoids can have. It can make a massive difference. Read up on the internet and even if the drs say that it won't make a difference and u think it would, stick to your guns about it.
that's everyone, we are off to a specialist Dr today to talk about all of this.
hi babybloom, im wondering how things are going now. was the specialist helpful. ? I hope you have some answers. marie.
